Singer-actor Nick Jonas' character on
Kingdom came out gay to his older brother in a recent episode.
Jonas plays MMA fighter Nate Kulina in
the DirecTV series now in its second season.
Jay (played by Jonathan Tucker)
investigates his brother's personal life. Nate confronts his brother
in a hospital room after he realizes that his brother has discovered
“Well, now you know,” Nate
“Why didn't you tell me?” Jay
“I really don't want anyone to know,”
Nate says, adding that he's worried how his father would react.
“Hey, it's your life. It's not for
me to say anything,” Jay says, then jokingly warns his brother that
he “better be on top.” “You're my brother and there's a
certain line that needs to be toed.”
“I always knew you were gay. You got
a lot of gay qualities. You're gentle. You smell delightful. You
dress well. If you turn our house into a Palm Springs pool fiesta,
I'm moving out,” Jay adds.
Last year, Jonas
teased sex scenes for his character.
